363 The Clients Cleverness 5

 Shen Yanxiao smiled as she looked at the mercenaries who tried to comfort her.

They were aware of the dangers that surrounded Mount Kuluo, but no one from the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group had backed out. They even had the energy to comfort a 'dead weight' like her. Their concern for her was very similar to her team members from her past life.

Unfortunately...

The team that had brought her endless warmth had been killed during one of their missions.

Did she have to look on helplessly as the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group suffered the same fate?

Shen Yanxiao clenched her fist.

Even though she was not a kind soul, she still cherished every person who had been kind to her. Du Lang had invited her to the mission with an ulterior motive, but the group's care and concern stemmed from their hearts. All of them regarded her as an ordinary little kid.

In her past life, she could not resist fate as she was under the control of the organization.

However, she would not allow the same thing to happen again.

From a particular perspective, that unscrupulous girl valued friendship more than anything else. The loss she experienced in her past life made her cherish that word even more.

Even though they had only spent ten days with each other, the mercenaries had shown their heart to her. She was determined to ensure their survival in that mission!

Shen Yanxiao discreetly made a vow. She did not care about the life and death of the other mercenaries, but she would protect the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group during their trip to Mount Kuluo!

Many of the mercenaries were in disarray. All their leaders also rushed toward the client with questions about their destination.

However, the client looked at the agitated leaders with a cold and indifferent expression.

"I have clearly mentioned the dangers of this mission, and all of you have agreed to it. Yet you wish to back out now? Why? Don't tell me that the mercenaries of the Black City dared to accept a mission but had no courage to complete it? Only the mere mention of the slightest danger and you have refused to advance further. If you're such cowards, don't tarnish the name of a mercenary and go back home to cultivate fields." The client sneered and spoke after everyone else had their say. His every single word was a sharp slap on the leaders' faces.

Shen Yanxiao narrowed her eyes. The client was right. He had mentioned everything beforehand, and per the rules of mercenaries, they had to gauge if they could undertake the mission before they accepted it. If they were to accept it, then they would have to persist until they could complete the task, even if they had overestimated their ability. That was the mercenaries' principles.

As for the people who had tried to back out, they had indeed disgraced the name of mercenaries.

However...

Shen Yanxiao discreetly sneered. The client was no better. Even though he had stated all the pros and cons of the mission, he had deliberately reduced a twelfth-ranked magical beast to an eighth-ranked one. The difference in four ranks would cause the annihilation of an entire team of a thousand men. That man was cruel, indeed!

The client's clean-cut speech had managed to slap the group of leaders in their faces. They did not even have the words to refute him.

Their actions had tarnished the reputation of mercenaries, but it was not entirely their fault.

Who could have expected that their destination was Mount Kuluo, a place that everyone avoided like the plague? That place was a nightmare for all mercenaries. Unless they were crazy, otherwise no one would have accepted the mission.

The client had dug a pit hole for the mercenaries as they assumed that they only had to deal with a single eighth-ranked Phoenix. None of them expected that the Phoenix's nest would be located at such a dangerous place.
